About

Twice a climber. And a skimo racer.

Skimo Racing

Since 2014, I’ve been skimo racing and studying endurance training under Scott Johnston. Using the Uphill Athlete method, I qualified for the Canadian National Development Team three times and competed at the 2019 World Championships.

Climbing

Before skimo, I was a sponsored climber, supported by Black Diamond, SCARPA, Grivel, Metolius, Clif Bar, and Adidas Eyewear. But that was all before Instagram, so it’s hard to tell if it ever really happened…

Coaching

I coach mountain sports* at Uphill Athlete. I’m a regular contributor to the UA website and the moderator of the UA forum.

* Mountain sports = climbing, ski mountaineering, mountain running, etc.

Writing

When I was climbing a lot, I wrote for several climbing journals and magazines: Alpinist, Climbing, Rock & Ice, Gripped, the Canadian Alpine Journal, and the American Alpine Journal.

At random intervals, I post what I’ve learned on my blog.
